We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

This was the first of three Slow Ways routes I walked yesterday, on a long walk starting at West Bridgford and ending at Cotgrave, via Keyworth.
I can't believe that the only previous reviewer of this route gave it just one star - it is a pleasant walk, probably the best scenic approach to connecting these two suburbs, and the accessibility issues are very minor compared with some of those I have encountered on Slow Ways routes elsewhere. I accept that it can't be recommended to wheelchair users, because the path up through Clifton Wood is unsurfaced and a little steep, but there are no steps and no stiles, the major road crossings are all safe thanks to pelican and zebra crossings (in particular the A453 roundabout in Clifton has pelican crossings on every road), and anyone who can cope with the minor difficulties will find this enjoyable. The GPX file is a little too approximate in places - nobody walks straight across roundabouts.

I enjoyed the walk and would recommend it as a walk but not as a Slow Way. It takes the north bank of the Trent over the suspension bridge which is far superior to the dismal walled in path on the south bank but this does make it longer. Crossing the river again at Wilford is pleasant and The Ferry offers a stop on route. For locals familiar with passing over Clifton Bridge the path underneath offers a new view. The path continues along the river side all good surfaces no stiles, no cattle and away from traffic. Approaching Clifton Grove is a climb on a grass path, muddy in winter. The Grove a wide grass strip was promoted in the 1920s as having views north but trees now negate the advantage of the elevated path. A parallel path stays riverside which may be better. Clifton Hall, just off route is now apartments, a dovecote and the old school offer a reminder this was once a village. The approach to the meeting point is wide and friendly along what was Glapton Lane before meeting the tram served shopping precinct.
